intake cleaning
#1
has anyone taken off the intake manifold on a 1.6 diesel to clean it?

hard or easy job?

took off the silver flexi pipe (top left, back corner) that i presume comes from the egr and comes off the intake with 2 torx head screws

looks manky in there loads of soot build up. Confused

looks hard to blank too Dodgy

what size torx did you use ?? mine are rusted to buggery so I have been sousing them liberally with wd40 and the like, but I don't want to be rounding anything off by using an inappropriate sized bit.....


What are the barriers to blanking ??
53 plate 1.9d Multispace Forte

Upgraded t'wireless and front speakers, loads more planned but not much action.. Wink
